About the conference

The Next 30 Years in Theoretical Archaeology.

2015 marks the 30th anniversary of Nordic TAG and the Copenhagen conference will be the 15th Nordic TAG meeting. Thus the 2015 Nordic TAG meeting will celebrate this event by hosting a plenary discussion with the theme “The Next 30 Years in Theoretical Archaeology”.
The main idea of this theme is to discuss in which direction theories in the archaeological disciplines will develop and especially what new theories, methodologies and perspectives might influence our field in the future.

By hosting the 30th anniversary N-TAG we wish to celebrate the original idea underlying TAG conferences. Consequently there will be a focus on panel debates rather than key note lectures and we especially encourage the participation of MA and PhD students, as well as post-docs and younger scholars to participate and foster creative and wide ranging debates. Further, we aim to keep the cost of the conference and its fee as low as possible in favour of student’s participation.
